MBA/Master of Arts in Social Work, Social Policy, and Social Administration from Crown Family School
The University of Chicago offers a joint MBA and Crown Family School degree for students seeking a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to business management, policy development, research, and social science theory.
This joint-degree program enables students to pursue both a master’s degree in the Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice and a master of business administration at Chicago Booth in three years.
Graduates of the joint program become leaders across diverse fields of business, clinical social work, policy, and social administration practice, while their broader educational and experiential foundations translate into greater flexibility and impact throughout their future careers.
Students complete 1400 units of Booth-only course credit (+LEAD). In their first quarter of enrollment in the Crown Family School program, students select one of the following concentrations: social administration (four required courses and two electives) or clinical practice (five required courses and one elective; only those students approved in their second quarter of enrollment may continue in the clinical practice concentration).
